Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes)

Moving knowledge, not people. The result:
Better care for more people, closer to home.

Project ECHO aims to improve patient care by enhancing and supporting healthcare providers’ knowledge. This provides patients with faster access to the right care, closer to home.

Project Echo

The heart of the ECHO model™ is its hub-and-spoke knowledge-sharing networks, led by expert interprofessional teams who use multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers. In this way, primary care providers learn to provide excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities.

Project ECHO at St. Joseph’s Care Group offers weekly web-based videoconferences for primary care providers in Northern Ontario and beyond. The program is fully funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

Doing More for Patients

Chronic Pain and Opioid Stewardship

The Ottawa Hospital

In partnership with The Ottawa Hospital, St. Joseph's Care Group will recruit, train and support primary care providers from geographical areas that are underserviced with respect to evidence-based best practice chronic pain services. Our Chronic Pain and Opioid Stewardship ECHO will improve the management of care for patients with chronic pain across Ontario.

ECHO Sessions include

  • A brief educational presentation by the interprofessional team or invited experts
  • Discussion of de-identified cases (presented by care providers) and treatment recommendations
